Summer!

Here is a condensed photo journey of our summer:

Camping at the most awesome, secluded and free spot on Revelstoke Lake.
Campsite

Our private beach and dock

Swimming with a snowy mountain backdrop

Mud!

Clayton's preferred style of biking
Devouring the popcorn

Jax very dedicated to cooking his marshmellow:
he held it way above the fire for a good half hour! 

Grandkids, bathed and ready for a movie



Back at home
Shayla and Tristan made their own 'paint'

We made a tent downstairs

Superheros!

Superman and Batman capes I made


Bubble bath

Uncle Brian and Aunty Karen came for a visit.
We went to Writing on Stone!



Trip to Canmore
The kids and I joined Nathan, Jenn, Riley and Zoe in Canmore.
We drove the scenic route, saw some mountain goats.
Heart Creek hike

Remember that spoiled post?
Well here 'those twins' are catching a ride on their Mom
because the Momma just wanted the crying to stop!

The neat hidden waterfall

Making our way to the hidden waterfall!

Cousins

On our drive home we stopped for a pee
and picked some wildflowers
The kids gave us their wildflower bouquets and
made us fancy drinks for our anniversary



Camping at Lower St. Mary's Reservoir 

Our very secluded spot

All to ourselves!

Fishing


Hike up Bear's Hump in Waterton
Those twins! Too cute!

Our adorable kids

Mountain climbers

Beautiful views

The 'friendly' chipmunks were the highlight

Alvin

Jax exploring on his own: Mom please don't follow me.

Mya all tuckered out

Cameron falls

Can't get them to stand still when you want to get a picture;
and then Mya photo bombs our couple shot that Shayla took!

Back at our campsite; floating on the water

We saw so much wildlife at our campsite: this buck.
Beaver, pelican, heron, fish and cows!

Floating by the grazing buck

More deer

Found this beautiful spot: Wally's Beach

So much sand and big shade trees!

Life's a beach!

Kayaking

Shayla's turn to photo bomb a picture

More mud

Snack time



Back at home
Grandma Anne's birthday cake

Dress up

Trampoline + pool = FUN!

Archery 

Sigh. 
Summer fun. 
Sniff.

What the hell, so this is what the summer of a highly motivated doer looks like.... who likes to take pictures! I think you have more pictures of MY summer in there then I have! eek... will this bite me in the butt one day?
Well, your summer looks amazing, fun and full of adventure! Next time you say you are bored, I'm just going to assume you are exhausted and are getting the two mixed up!?
love you!
